July 21, 2010: Baja Motorsports Recalls Mini Bikes and Go-Carts

On July 15, 2010,  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in cooperation with Baja Inc. announced a voluntary recall of about  308,000 mini-bikes and go-carts because of safety hazards. The gas cap can leak or detach from the fuel tank on the recalled mini bikes and go-carts, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. In addition, the throttle can stick due to an improperly positioned fuel line and throttle cable, posing a sudden acceleration hazard to consumers.

Baja Inc. has received at least 9 reports of the gas caps leaking and detaching, including one report of a serious burn injury to a child. The firm has also received 25 reports of stuck throttles possibly due to the fuel line and throttle cable being improperly attached with injuries to the face and other parts of the body reported.

This recall involved Baja Motorsports mini bikes with model numbers beginning with HT65, MB165,  WR65, MB196, DB30, WR90 and DR90 and go-carts with model numbers BB65, SD65, DN65 and TR65.  The model number is located on the mini bikes’ fenders and/or decorative fuel tank and on the go-carts’ roll cage. Both the mini bokes and go-carts have black plastic gas caps.

The bikes were sold at various mini bike and go-cart retailers nationwide from November 2004 through June, 2010 for between  $200 and $2000. They were also available from the following web sites:;;;;; and

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mini bikes and go-carts and contact Baja Motorsports for a free replacement gas cap and to schedule a free repair of the fuel line and throttle cable.
